About The Author

I am an author, a Short Story Writer, a Novelist.

 

 

The characters of my SHORT STORIES live in and around India.  The country of India owns a rainbow like cultural spectrum. Mirroring the same is a challenge for any writer. My stories evolve from the messy engagements of personal and social relations and from the contemporary conditions, which shape them.

Though the characters and situations in these short stories are drawn from everyday life, happening in instantly recognizable places, they are capable to spring surprises even for those who are familiar with Indian life and culture. In most of the stories, care has been taken to keep the characters ordinary, not making them extraordinary or unbelievable. Readers may find common themes running through some of the stories, feeling a sense of continuity. Nevertheless, each story stands alone in its own right.

On a stage where masculinity calls the shots, India being a male dominant society, some of the stories try opening emotional outlets for women, too. Lady protagonists occupying centre stage deal with the challenges in different ways. 

 

Novel

My first novel ‘Message From The Garden’ is story of a woman, a child of a failed marriage, who hates men en masse and lives a fenced life. It narrates how the power of love changes lives, and how the relationship grows like a flower plant. Relationship is not a cake you can buy from a shop at the corner of your street. It develops with the time. It grows as a flower plant. When the seed is sown in the land, it does not sprout itself. You’ve to till the land; you’ve to water the plant. And when you get a diamond, you have to protect it, too.
